When someone close passes, the book of memories for them and you is complete. Maybe, the book is filled with all good memories, but usually this is not the case. For as we are imperfect, we make mistakes along the way.
It is the few mistakes, rather than the many good memories, that haunt and agonize you in the midst of grieving. It seems that it is the mistakes that take center stage in our minds, but it doesn’t have to be like that.
Allow mutual forgiveness to cover the mistakes you make with others. You may be holding something against you that they have long forgiven you for. Isn’t it time to forgive yourself, so that you can enjoy all the good memories?
